Pole Climb

When working in tight spaces it is not always possible to get a bucket truck close enough to a pole. Our linesmen had to go old school this week using climbing spurs to reach the top of the pole, where he removed 2 phases and changed out a top pin to a 27.6kv insulator. This was in further preparation for the conversion from 5kv to 27.6kv.

Our Power Linesman is using our Digger Derrek Line Truck to stand a highway direction sign along the QEW.

New Pole Line

Over the past few weeks the weather was cooperating and the SGC crew has been on site installing a new pole line for a 5KV transmission with a 27KV over build. Even bedrock isn't slowing us down!

Hydro Excavation

Hydro excavation is an environmentally friendly process that uses high pressurized water as well as an industrial strength vacuum to excavate and evacuate soil. High pressure water is used to break up soil, rock, gravel etc. while being vacuumed into a debris tank for later disposal. Our Hydro Excavation team was on site for a customer exposing underground utilities and cleaning catch basins.

New Structure

Sid Grabell Contracting installed a new structure inside of a substation this long weekend. Using a crane, the structure was moved into place and installed. We connected 44KV switches and PT’s to the new structure from the existing structure for revenue metering.

Transformer Replacement

Sid Grabell Contracting replaced a large transformer for a customer. Using a crane, the old transformer was removed and the new one set in its place. With a crew of 7 people SGC was able to make quick work of this replacement and finish it within 6 hours.
